National Firearms Amnesty July-Sept 2017

(District Council of Barunga West)
15 August 2017 12:19pm
Australia’s first National Firearms Amnesty aimed at reducing the number of unregistered firearms in our community runs from 1 July to 30 September 2017. During the three-month amnesty, anyone can hand in unregistered firearms or firearm-related items for registration or surrender at approved drop-off points without penalty and without fear of prosecution. In Australia, it is illegal to have an unregistered firearm. Outside of the amnesty period, anyone caught with an unregistered firearm could face a fine of up to $280,000, 14 years in jail, and a criminal record. Information about individual state and territory requirements, including how and where to surrender firearms, can be found at www.firearmsamnesty.ag.gov.au or by calling 1800 909 826.
